Kennesaw Student Commuter

And Now for Something More Pedestrian

Posted on: December 1, 2009

I LOVE these shoes (left). I get a lot of questions about them when I’m out, especially at school so I’m going to give everyone the scoop. Everything from “Is that comfortable?” to “Are those real shoes?”

They’re extremely comfortable and yes, they are REAL shoes. I love them. They’re called Vibram Fivefingers.  According to the FiveFingers Web site you can also find them at Abbadabba’s in Kennesaw.

I purchased mine online a couple years ago  (and they’re still in great shape),  when they were more reasonably priced for a student’s budget.  Even at the current price of $80 they are a great value because they are so versatile and last for a very long time.  You can take them dirty places like camping or hiking without worrying about ruining your shoes.

I think what is most unique about these shoes is that you can throw them in your washing machine. This is really convenient for college students like myself who spend a an increasing amount of time racing through puddles to get to class lately. Just make sure you dry them the old-fashioned way, though.
